WESTMINSTER — With more than half of her high school career remaining, sophomore Rachel Lucas might be hard pressed to play a more complete basketball game than she displayed Jan. 28.

Clear Creek’s 5-foot-7 hoopster scored a career-high 20 points, snared nine rebounds, nabbed four steals and dished out two assists — all while guarding The Academy’s best offensive threat and holding her below her season’s average.
